Don’t Throw It Away

​This morning NPR ran a segment about the “gender divide” that Trump’s candidacy has exposed among evangelical Christians. They interviewed or quoted a number of high-profile evangelical women regarding the impact of Trump’s rise and influence, while referencing a litany of male leaders who have sought to defend or endorse Trump, because, of course, they want to frame Trump’s character as a gender issue. Granted, they ignored a number of high-profile evangelical men who have spoken out against Trump from day one (think Russell Moore, John Piper, or Virginia’s latest celebrity sensation, megachurch Pastor Todd Pruitt). But these voices have been shamefully few and far between. Meanwhile the wretched excuses offered by morality industry heavyweights like Falwell, Robertson, and Dobson make it far too easy for progressives to play these dishonest games. 

Trump’s character is not, and has never been, a gender issue. Brothers, it is to our everlasting shame that our voices have not been raised in defense of our wives, our daughters, our sisters, our mothers, our neighbors, loudly enough to drown out the traitors who tell us to forgive and forget because he’s just a redblooded man. Do you value your sisters in Christ so poorly? Do you expect so little from your sons, your brothers, yourselves? Do you sell your credibility so cheaply? Is your place at the political trough worth all of this? How will you ever justify your silence, to say nothing of actively making excuses and whitewashing this panting dog’s behavior? 

It is worth it, you say? Then do not be surprised when compassionate heretics like Jen Hatmaker steal the hearts of your daughters. It will be your fault. And when you find that they accept all kinds of gender perversions along with the defense of their value as women, remember that you let Trump’s filthy assault on their dignity become just another gender issue.
